Why PCGS and NGC-Graded Coins are a Good Investment
The Professional Coin Grading Service (PCGS) and the Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) are the two top coin grading services in the world. They both work to ensure that any coin delivered to them is impartially graded. Both companies apply a rigorous process to grade each coin. Each company employs the best numismatic experts on hand to ensure the best grade and quality. When you order a PCGS or NGC coin, you can be sure both the grade and quality of the coin are guaranteed. The grading scale is represented from 1 to 70, with 70 being perfect condition. A 1 represents a poor coin. There are several reasons why these coins make good investments, but here we will explore three reasons.
- Provides peace of mind for beginning and experienced collectors. It is scary starting off in coin collecting. As a coin collector, maximizing your profits and the value of the collection is important. Owning a PCGS or NGC-graded coin guarantees you get the exact grade and quality of the coin. Any worry as to whether you have a genuine coin is alleviated. Too often coin collectors who are not as well versed in identifying coins make bad purchases or decisions that can end up hurting them in the end.
- Encapsulated and guaranteed for your protection. Not only is your coin guaranteed but it comes encapsulated for protection in the shipping process and while in storage or on display. When buying ungraded bullion coins online, you are often unsure of the quality unless it comes from a reputable source like APMEX. It can also be unclear how they ship the coin, which may cause damage in transit. Guarantees are important in the context of shipping Precious Metals bullion because much of the value of the coin lies in the quality.
- There is more leverage in reselling with a PCGS or NGC-graded coin. Selling NGC coins or PCGS coins offers more leverage because of the notoriety and authenticity of the coin. Whether selling the coin to coin shops or online, buyers are more comfortable when they know there is validation for the coin.
When you buy coins for your coin collection, consider buying NGC and PCGS coins. They are good investments for now and the future. Regardless of what Precious Metals prices do, these graded bullion coins outpace the value. There is a wide variety of coins graded by these two entities. You can find Pre-1933 Gold coins or Early Half Dollars and many more. Graded coins are good collectible coins for any investment or coin collection. At APMEX, you can find the NGC or PCGS coin for you.
